Lake Baskunchak is a salt lake in Astrakhan Oblast, Russia. The lake is a kind of hollow on top of the salt mountain. Numerous springs flow into the lake on the north-west coast bringing in the lake more than 2.5 thousand tons of salts per day. The lake is the place of salt mining from the 8th century. Today, pure 99.8% salt extracted here makes up to 80% of the total salt production in Russia. Depending on demand, 1.5 to 5 million tons of salt is mined per year.
